Lincolnshire gets dancing for BBC Children in Need!

BBC Radio Lincolnshire is inviting people to shake off the winter blues and join in a 24-hour dance marathon to raise money for this year's BBC Children in Need Appeal.

The event, which takes place at The Lawn in Lincoln, starts at 8am on Friday 20 November and is being organised by Radio Lincolnshire and dance organisation Jivefusion.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire's audiences editor Andy Roche said: "Basically, our event is a 24-hour dance marathon. We'll be broadcasting from it all day, and asking people to be part of it by learning to dance for free, and donating money to Children in Need.
